Guelph, Ontario and Paris, France (Nov 1, 2018) – Nutrasource Pharmaceutical and Nutraceutical Services (Nutrasource), a full-service contract research organization (CRO), announced today the formation of a strategic collaboration with international regulatory and medical consulting firm RNI Consulting/RNI Conseil, headquartered in France. This relationship will strengthen Nutrasource and RNI’s mutual leadership positions in regulatory, research, and development strategy while providing clients with access to a broader scope of services to commercialize and launch health products in global markets.
RNI brings a robust service platform specializing in scientific, medical, and toxicology capabilities that complements Nutrasource’s expertise in clinical trial design, management, and execution for dietary supplements, foods, and pharmaceuticals. Together, Nutrasource and RNI are poised to deliver greater value to clients as they navigate the global regulatory framework and pursue clinical research to substantiate claims and gain market entry around the world.
“Extending our full-service platform beyond the North American market has always been a strategic goal for the company,” said William Rowe, President and CEO of Nutrasource. “This collaboration with RNI, a world class regulatory consulting firm, provides the ideal opportunity to meet this objective while opening up new markets for our customers. We have worked with RNI for some time successfully and this formalizes our joint collaboration to the marketplace.”
“RNI is pleased to be collaborating with Nutrasource to offer our clients a broader range of services for the North American market as well as premier clinical trial testing for supporting health claims and medical indications, for nutrition and pharmaceutical development,” said Violaine Chaumont, President and CEO of RNI. “Beyond worldwide regulations, the clinical requirements are now stringent and are applicable starting with the R&D phase. The regulatory strategy cannot be disconnected from the clinical approach anymore, regardless of the product regulatory classification.”
